Niall Griffiths's picture

Niall Griffiths


UK flag (1966 - )

Back in 2000 a passionate, poetic and obscene new literary voice came howling out of West Wales. Those vital utterances belonged to Niall Griffiths. In Grits, his debut novel, he mixed an unholy cocktail of heroin and geology. His blood-soaked follow-up Sheepshagger gave Welsh literature its first genuine cult anti-hero - Ianto.

City of Bohane (2011)
